Stopped by my local Target store here in Texas tonight, and found their exclusive Star Wars Rebels 12-Inch Titan 6 Pack. They had 6 sets in stock with a retail price of $49.99 each.

As we first reported back on 9/13, Walmart has released the Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion DVD today (10/3/14). Looks like Walmart made a special deal with Lucasfilm to release this DVD earlier then all other retailers. Current price at my local Walmart was $12.96. All other retailers should release this on 10/14/14.

At the moment, this movie is only available on DVD. For some odd reason it was not released on Blu-ray.

StarWars.com has done a interview with Star Wars Rebels Executive Producer Simon Kinberg. Pretty interesting read. This is only part 1 of the interview though.

Just a reminder that the Star Wars Rebels Spark of Rebellion one-hour movie makes its Television debut tonight, October 3 at 9:00 p.m., ET/PT on the Disney Channel. The Series will follow beginning Monday, October 13 (9:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney XD.

Stopped by my local Walmart today, and found a Jakks Pacific 31" figure display in front of the Toy Department. The display is 4-sided and sits on a Pallet. There was only 3 different figures on the display which was the Inquisitor, Rebels Stormtrooper, and Vader. Price was $34.97 each.

The Power of the Jedi FX-7 (Medical Droid) was released back in 2001 and packed on a collection 2 card. The sculpt actually looks pretty good. As far as articulation, his entire mid-section spins and each lower arm moves up and down and also bends. There are no included accessories with this figure. Be sure to check out all the new HD Pics!

Revisited today is the 2000 Power of the Jedi Queen Amidala (Theed Invasion) figure. A decent looking sculpt with 4 points of articulation which are Head, Shoulders, and Waist. There is no accessories included with this figure. Enjoy the new HD Pics!

• Card back# 571101.0100.
• Card back# 571101.0300.

Today I have updated our HD Photo Gallery with the 2014 Black Series 6-Inch #01 Sandtrooper. This figure is a repack of the 2013 Black Series #03 Sandtrooper, but with a all Black Pauldron, giving him a different rank. Still a awesome looking figure and great for army builders.

Was at Toys R Us today and was flipping through the figures on the pegs and noticed something didn't look right on some of the Dak Ralter #25 figures. The cards with date stamp 41221 used a lighter bluish-gray paint on the chest box and hose and the red and green paint used on the chest box buttons was different as well.

Check out the comparison pic. The one on the right is the newer one I just found today. The store I visited had 3 of each, so its not a one off.

StarWars.com has posted a interesting and informative article on what Star Wars Rebels products we can expect to find from Hasbro, LEGO, JAKKS Pacific, and etc at your local retailers. Some of this stuff has already hit retail and I am sure we will see a flood of merchandise in the coming weeks.

The Official Star Wars Rebels Movie Trailer has popped up over at the Star Wars Youtube Channel. Don't forget that the Movie premieres Friday, October 3rd at 9pm on the Disney HD Channel.

Toys R Us is having a Buy one Get one 40% off sale on all Star Wars Action Figures, Playsets, Role Play, and Kids Furniture. This sale starts today and ends 9/27/14, per the sales Ad. Not a bad deal. Be sure to check your local stores as new toys have been showing up the past few weeks.

As you guys know I am a variation and error collector and I am constantly on the look out for them. Well today while at Walmart, I noticed a paint change on The Black Series #21 Luke Skywalker figure. Hasbro has changed the paint color on his Belt and Gun Holster. The first version (Date Stamp 40851) was painted a reddish brown color and the second version (Date Stamp 41601) is painted a dark brown. You can see the change by clicking on the image above for a side by side comparison photo, or visit the figure's page for some larger photos.

I believe we are the first to report this variation, so remember you heard it here first.

Added to our HD Photo Gallery today is the 2014 Toys R Us Exclusive Star Wars Rebels Reveal the Rebels: Jedi Reveal set. The figures includes in this set is Kanan Jarrus, Ezra Bridger, and Holographic Obi-Wan Kenobi. The sculpts on these figures actually look pretty good in my opinion, but they do suffer from some sloppy paint applications. Kanan and Ezra both have 5 Points of Articulation, while the Holographic Obi-Wan Kenobi only has 1, which is his head. Enjoy the new HD Pics!

Just received a email from HasbroToyShop.com stating that they are having a "20% off most action figures" sale along with free shipping on orders over $50 (some exclusions apply). These offers are valid until 9/30/14. Not a bad deal.

Just started to photograph the Star Wars Rebels - Reveal the Rebels: Jedi Reveal set and as a preview I have uploaded some boxed photos to our Facebook Page if you want to check them out.

Some people finding this set have reported that the hands on the Kanan figure have been glued into his forearms crooked or sideways. Be sure to check his hands out before buying the set.

While I did not see the Kanan Hand issue with the 6 sets I seen today, I did find one that had Ezra's arm twisted the wrong way in the box. Got to love quality control.
